ALISON BOSHOFF: Sex bomb Sydney Sweeney is determined not to be typecast as she holds her own alongside A-List talent Jude Law and Vanessa Kirby in new film

Sydney Sweeney may be Hollywood’s sex bomb du jour, but the 26-year-old, who first caught the eye in Euphoria and The White Lotus, is determined not to be typecast.

In her new film, Eden, glamorous Sweeney will be playing a mumsy hausfrau alongside some A-List talent — including Jude Law and Vanessa Kirby — and I hear she more than holds her own.

Buzz is already building about her strong performance in the picture, a thriller from director Ron Howard about a group of settlers on Floreana — a remote island in the Galapagos — in the 1930s, based on a stranger-than-fiction true story.

Law plays Dr Friedrich Ritter, a pioneering nudist German vegetarian (with stainless steel teeth). Kirby plays his wife Dore.

Ana de Armas is the ‘Baroness’, who arrives determined to build a hotel on the isle, and takes numerous lovers. And Sweeney is Margaret Wittner, married to Heinz (played by Daniel Bruhl).

Put them all together and murder and mayhem ensue.

A source says: ‘Sydney is amazing. It’s going to take her Hollywood career up to a new level, playing across from all of these heavyweight actors and working with a director of Ron’s calibre. ’

The film has been produced by Hollywood super-indies Imagine and AGC Studios, and is expected to launch its awards campaign with a premiere at the Venice Film Festival this summer.
